A Day in Milford, OH!

Main St., Milford!

The weather was absolutely beautiful this past Tuesday...perfect for a day of treasure hunting in Milford, OH! This is a small village near where I live that is chock full of antique and other "treasure" stores...always something great to be found!
Lunch at the 20 Brix
We (my wife, my youngest daughter, and myself) started our adventure by having lunch at the 20 Brix. This is a great restaurant/wine bar...and when we were there, we had the place to ourselves! (At least inside...the tables outside were full....)

Bins and bins of beads at Alley Beads!

Lunch finished, we headed over to Alley Beads, a fun little bead shop on Main St. I was looking for trinkets for a mixed-media project while my companions were just looking! I did find a few things but not what I was really looking for...but that's part of the adventure!!

Next up...was over to what I guess is like an antique mall! It does have a name...but I just don't remember what it is! The above pics are what I found...but didn't buy! (Unfortunately, they wanted "retail prices" for this!!)

But...I did buy this great cabinet for only $10!! With a little work...this will become my next "Cabinet of Curiosities"!

At the shop next to this mall...Gayle's Vintage wife and daughter spent a lot of time going through all the clothes and such while I went through the stacks and stacks of "stuff"! This is the type of shop where you have to climb over things to get at something...and you're encouraged to do so! I left so much behind...but I did pick up a couple of these V-Mail Christmas greetings and a small set of old rubber stamps. (Nothing special about these...just fun!)

A fun day indeed...I do love treasure hunts!!

Looks like a fun day. Thanks for taking us along.

Wow. I'm glad I wasn't there. I'd spend a fortune, and we don't have one to spend.

Wonderful kind of day you had. I love shops where stuff is piled so that you have to climb over things.
